  • Description


    THE HOTEL PALAIS D' ORSAY, M. TIXIER-VIGNANCOUR SPEAKING (SOF IN FRENCH), AND LIBRARY SHOTS OF TWO OF THE OTHER CANDIDATES: M. FRANCOIS MITTERRAND (IN 1959), AND SENATOR PIERRE MARCILHACY BEING INTERVIEWED IN PARIS LAST APRIL.



    TRANSCRIPT: M. TIXIER-VIGNANCOUR: "THE COMMON MARKET IS THE SECURITY AND ECONOMIC FUTURE OF FRANCE. THE ATLANTIC ALLIANCE IS THE SECURITY AND ECONOMIC FUTURE OF FRANCE'S DEFENCE. GENERAL DE GAULLE STARTED BY RIPPING UP THE TREATY OF ROME, NOT BECAUSE OF THE ATTITUDE OF OUR PARTNERS IN THE BRUSSELS NEGOTIATIONS, BUT BECAUSE THIS TREATY OF 1957 HAS BEEN DECLARED SEVEN YEAR AFTER MAY 13, 1958 -- TO BE CONTRARY TO THE FRENCH CONSTITUTION. NEXT, GENERAL DE GAULLE RIPPED UP THE TREATY OF THE ATLANTIC ALLIANCE, WHICH HAD BEEN EMPTIED OF ALL ITS SUBSTANCE BY THE RETREAT OF FRANCE FROM SEATO, AND THEN REFUSED TO ALLOW FRANCE TO PARTICIPATE IN NATO MANOEUVRES. FOR THE PRESENT HEAD OF STATE, THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY MEANS USURPATION, AND THE ATLANTIC ALLIANCE MEANS SUBORDINATION. FOR ME, THE ORGANISATION OF EUROPE IS THE FUTURE, AND THE ATLANTIC ALLIANCE GUARANTEES PEACE, WHICH IS THE REWARD OF COURAGE.
